If two people are married and they no longer have intimacy, they are ______________ ?
Fill in the blank with what comes to mind.
--------May be bored!
I believe they should talk to each other about this.
Even if the love is deep the couple needs to refresh, revamp, restyle not only themselves but their surroundings, bedroom etc. . Adding some excitement and glamour in the way they dress up or do their hair. Try getting a makeover and start taking interest in each other's hobbies and interest.
I always believe in strengthening relationships rather than break ups.
Still in love. There might be medical reasons as to why there is no intimacy between married couples. There might be a mutual agreement for them to live together even though they don't have sex anymore for old age reasons or physical disabilities. Sex might not be important to them but they want to still live together for companionship rather than living on their own. So many reasons, only couples who do not have intimacy know the answer to this.
Not as connected as they could be. But it depends on the type of intimacy. If they are still emotionally and spiritually connected, spending time together, physically affectionate, and still communicating, they are probably okay (just okay).This is all intimacy. But if sexual intimacy is missing, they are not living out the marriage optimally.
They are considered to be in a "sexless marriage".
According to statistics (1 in 5) marriages in the U.S. is classified as "sexless" based upon having sex less than 10 times per year.
The average married couple has sex 2-3 times per week.
Depending on the libido of each person in the marriage one may be content and the other silently suffering or engaged in cheating.
Communication is often mentioned as a solution but if one person has no interest in having more sex the other person can't force them.
A lot of people would rather cheat than run down to the courthouse to file for divorce, move out of their home, split assets, lower their living standards, become a weekend dad or single mom, pay child support and possibly alimony just because they're not having sex with their spouse! Cheaters also don't think they will be caught.
True intimacy is possible only between friends. Earlier they were friends so there was intimacy, now they are married and have spent some time together, they know either of them is not happy in the happiness of other.
"just friends and roommates". I understand that there may be physical reasons why a married couple cannot have intimacy and intimacy means many different things to many different people. But, if they are in good health, then having intimacy with each other is what makes their relationship something well beyond a platonic friendship or arrangement to live together. It helps them maintain the bond that keeps their love and marriage going. Without it, it's just too easy to view their partner in another light than a husband or wife, and the process of drifting apart takes hold. Just my opinion, of course.
In need of immediate couples therapy. How do you go from sex to no sex? Now if your on your 65th wedding anniversary-then to each their own.
If you had a marriage with sex now you have no sex - a window of opportunity is presenting itself and that is NOT a good thing.
